Selena Gomez is certainly lucky to have Niall Horan in her life. The One Direction singer is lifting Sel’s spirits after hearing the shocking and unsettling news that Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian were having a fling! Here’s what we know.
Selena Gomez has an angel on her shoulder — and it’s Niall Horan. The 23-year-old singer’s budding relationship with the One Direction star couldn’t come at a better time because she needs him now more than ever. HollywoodLife.com spoke to a source who tells us that he’s her rock right now. So sweet!
“Thank God [Selena] has Niall to help keep her busy, this way she can focus on her own love life instead of trying to keep up with Justin’s,” says the source. And we can understand why Selena’s so upset: Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian‘s fling has reportedly been going on for four months, but within that time, Justin and Selena were spotted together appearing very lovey-dovey. Talk about Justin sending mixed messages!

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Justin was spotted Nov. 20 serenading Selena with “My Girl” during a romantic evening at the Montage Beverly Hills, where they also slow-danced in the bar, held hands and kissed! And during the early hours of Nov. 23, Selena and Justin were spotted leaving his American Music Awards after-party at Hollywood hotspot The Nice Guy, with Selena sporting a huge smile on her face.
Luckily for Selena, Niall has swooped in at the right time, helping to keep Selena’s attention off of Justin. As HollywoodLife.com reported, Selena and Niall were caught making out on Dec. 4 at Jenna Dewan‘s birthday party. The following day, on Dec. 5, Selena and Niall continued their love-a-thon, with an adorable date on the Santa Monica Pier, where they were “holding hands,” according to an eyewitness. Niall even tried to win Selena a stuffed animal. Interestingly enough, Justin occasionally visits the Santa Monica Pier, so maybe Selena wanted to get caught!
Selena and Niall’s romance has even crossed the pond. Selena jetted to London to take in The X Factor UK‘s Dec. 14 finale — missing BFF Taylor Swift‘s Stateside birthday party — where One Direction performed for the last time before their hiatus. The pair were spotted hanging out afterwards at The Edition Hotel in London, and then leaving together!
So Selena is lucky she’s having fun with Niall — even if she’s on the rebound from Justin! We hope Niall plans something fun for the holidays with her because she totally needs to get her mind off Jourtney! And he may just have something up his sleeve, considering on the Dec. 15 episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden, Niall said (jokingly?) he would marry Selena!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Niall is the perfect diversion for Selena?
